For those of you interested in writing easy readers, there's a wonderful post by Blueboarder Tina Cho on Nancy Sanders' blog this week, providing very clear information about guided reading levels. She gives lots of helpful examples.

In case you wonder about the references to Kaeden in the article, Tina's post is part of Nancy's blog series (a sort of free workshop) for authors who want to try to write something in response to Kaeden's recent call for submissions.
